Inter war 1/700 Destroyer IJN Mikazuki

Recommended Posts

Dear Fellow Modellers

These peculiar shaped IJN Destroyers were inspired by German WW1 designs. The gun armament was placed above the main deck to ensure all armament would function in heavy weather. The strange focsle reminds me of a whaler?

This old kit had no portholes or details on the deck houses so I embarked on a month of scratch building and photo etch extravaganza!

I think Mikazuki means 'full moon'

Hope you like it?

Thanks for your kind words guys

When I start with a tiny 1/700 destroyer I always think 'well this won't take long', but then the obsessive side takes over and it seems to take as long to perfect as a battleship!

Fantastic work! With a bit of cleaver photography it could pass for the real ship!
